Gaja (गज), a Sanskrit word for elephant, is one of the significant animals finding references in Hindu scriptures and Buddhist and Jain texts. In general, a gaja personifies a number of positive attributes, including abundance, fertility and richness; boldness and strength; and wisdom and royalty.
The origin of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning “circle.” A mandala has a concentric shape, even though it is dominated by squares or triangles. Mandalas have visually balancing elements while also symbolising unity and harmony. Individual mandala definitions are generally different and special to each mandala.The mandala’s aim is to serve as a tool on our spiritual path because it represents cosmic and psychic order.
In addition, we use the mandala as a form of meditation to gain knowledge, especially the kind that exists within each of us. Mandalas are now used for both interior and exterior purposes.The outer (a model of the universe), the inner (to assist minds in being enlightened), and the hidden layers of meaning make up a mandala (a perfect balance of mind and body)
